Daily Thread of Stuff

Well, I un-cut the cord today because it's actually cheaper to get three months of Sasktel TV service on promo than it is just to have internet.  So discuss this and other stuff going on this afternoon!  Go sports?  I dunno, whatever, Brian is better at this shit.

    I've cut the cord, un-cut the cord, then cut the cord again. Sometimes it's hard to pass up money-saving promos. Eventually, I'll find that there is nothing on my 300 or so channels and cut the cord. I'm fine with my over-the-air classic TV channels, WWE Network and Sling.

  2. So I know this guy who owns his own business, an equipment rental place, party stuff too. He does basically all of his own shopping at Wal Mart because it's cheap, but posts frequent pleas on Facebook to support local business.


    I want to kick him.

    Buck Martinez is a horrible play-by-play guy. But he is always a better option than whoever they throw out there. Fergie Olver, I'm looking at you.

  9. Samoa Joe's WWE shirt is already sold out. He's probably sold more merch in WWE over the last four days than he made in his last four years in TNA

  10. I love the looney tunes golden collection and all, but it's criminal that we had so many discs dedicated to these worthless 30s black and white bullshit and only like 3 Foghorn Leghorn shorts. Criminal I say.

    I have no time for Bosco and that other shit. Give me Foghorn and Daffy all day.

  14. Yeah, I'm sure this shit was melting people's faces off back in 1935, but it does nothing for me now.

  15. I was thinking of going to the game but fuck that noise lol. So stupid to riot.

  16. Well if he lives in Arkansas, it would be a local business

  19. With the Cleveland "riots", will game 3 of the ecf be an empty arena game?

  20. Bathroom sink is not draining. What's the solution here? Draino or bleach

    ReplyDelete
  21. Draino. Works 60% of the time every time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Tombstone is on my schedule to watch for this afternoon followed by The Outlaw Josey Wales.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Stranger In The AlpsMay 23, 2015 at 11:25 AM

    Draino first. If that doesn't work, try to plunge it. If that doesn't work, see if you dropped a cap down in there.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wonder if hhh would ever consider Joe's type deal with a lot more if the roster. Not only would it give guys exposure to different atmospheres, but maybe boost the US scene as a whole if Indies could land special appearances by nxt names... Risk injury but maybe promotes long term industry health... Protect say a top three or four with standard nxt only deals, but the rest could freelance

    ReplyDelete
  25. One of those metal snake thingys.

    ReplyDelete
  26. You have love, you smug bastard!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Judging by the news it's a mess downtown. Two different protests going on (one for Rice, one against Brelo). I hope they don't try storming the stadium once they get wind that there's a baseball game going on and they can get their little media attention by making noise outside of it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I just read the story and it sure looks greasy on the cop but having driven through the scary part of Cleveland once I can sort of understand why they would be short on patience.


    Best of luck to you, and to Cleveland.

    ReplyDelete
  29. If going to the store anyway, get a snake

    ReplyDelete
  30. Seriously dude, my bathroom sink wasn't draining either a little bit ago, poured some draino in it and 15 minutes later it was draining like new again. Start there.

  41. Tombstone was one of my uncle's favorite movies and we watched it at the hospital shortly before he passed, so I will always have a soft spot for that movie.

    ReplyDelete
  42. With the Hawks on the ropes, now half of their fanbase here in Atlanta will go back to being fans of whatever team wins the championship

    ReplyDelete
  43. And the other half will be wondering when Smoltz, Glavine, and Maddux will pitch next.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Draino usually works pretty well but it wrecks your pipes.

    ReplyDelete
  45. No but traffic is gonna suck big time.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Also on that list is some Once Upon a Time in the West.

    ReplyDelete
  47. My gut is telling me that Joe is only working as a free agent because he had other Indy appearances booked already when the WWE made him the offer he couldn't refuse. It's not in HHH's best interests to screw any promotions by pulling guys off shows they're advertised for because a lot of wrestlers have close bonds with certain promotions.

    If he continues to book more Indy appearances while under WWE contract, then I take it back.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Went over to 411 to check the headlines and noticed Caliber is now writing for them. Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool.

    ReplyDelete
  49. It would probably entice some of the indy stars into joining nxt, but the ones who are there to be trained and have never wrestled in there life are going to want exclusive deals.

  52. Supposedly it's the same as Rhino who had continued to take indy bookings

  53. So when Meltzer is finally proven right come September, will TNATards blame him for giving Destination American the cancelation idea in the first place or something equally stupid?

  55. True, the greener than goose shit ones would be best served as exclusives

  56. I have the urge to run his stuff through a plagiarism checker

    ReplyDelete
  57. "I heard Glavine is pitching tomorrow night in the playoffs!"

    ReplyDelete
  58. It's possible, but I think they have bigger plans for Joe. Rhyno is there to be a jobber who gives the rookies some experience working with a guy who knows the WWE style well.

    ReplyDelete
  59. GREAT movie. One of my favorites

    ReplyDelete
  60. It's so awful it is hard for me to believe he stole it from someone....again.

  61. Adam "Colorado" CurryMay 23, 2015 at 11:40 AM

    The really sad thing is that he's one of the better 411 writers.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yeah I say we won't know the full terms of Joe's deal for a few more weeks

    ReplyDelete
  63. Still more believable than "Moose Jaws"

    ReplyDelete
  64. Anyone know what 411 writers get paid?

    ReplyDelete
  65. SO Caliber going to 411 is like when Hogan jumped ship to WCW right?

    ReplyDelete
  66. I like the agents of shield write ups and sforcina

  70. People have been saying that for a while but I go to look and I've never seen him. Is he under that name?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Adam "Colorado" CurryMay 23, 2015 at 11:43 AM

    Sforcina used to be good, but ever since he got Ask411 back from Watry he's been absolutely horrible. He needs to step down and let Ryan Byers take it over.

    ReplyDelete
  72. A girl I dated in 2000/2001 sends me a message asking me if I knew the significance of May 21, and I said no. She gets mad and can't believe I didn't know it would have been our 10 year wedding anniversary since she apparently planned for us to get married in 2005. Keep in mind I had not seen or talked to her since 2001. She gave her son my initials..."I'm not a psycho" she told me...

    ReplyDelete
  80. Just make sure you don't bring her to your place and you always carry a condom.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Probably. Wrestling fans can be loco as shit.

    ReplyDelete
  82. She wanted to know everything I've done since 2001.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Watching old stuff on the Network, I wonder what became of some WWE's giveaways. Like apparently they gave away a Stone Cold Steve Austin truck with "100% Pure Whoop Ass" on the tailgate. Seriously, someone apparently got that and presumably drove it around. I know they gave away that house for the first In Your House PPV.


    I wonder if there's any good stories behind what happened to any of that stuff. I know they did others over the years.

    Sweet Jesus, you better check your air conditioning ducts. She's looking at you through the vent right now.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Yeah, I mean say they gave away like a $200,000 house. The taxes on receiving that as a gift are probably 40% or something like that.


    It's like when Oprah gave away those cars. Half the people had to sell them just to pay the taxes.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm glad someone else has noticed. He was going downhill and getting complaints before Watry took over. I think the whole Watry saga was a setup to get the complainers off Sforcina's back.

    ReplyDelete
  106. He claimed his e-mails to Scott were all a work to get him hired at 411

    ReplyDelete
  107. Wait, you guys get paid?

    ReplyDelete
  108. I love how he used Robocop for his column...which is a satire and parodies those types of movies and he never brings it up. Good writing!

    ReplyDelete
  109. See: Any game show, such as TPIR. If someone wins a car, they do NOT get tax, title, and license covered. That's either paid out of other winnings, or they just get the money equivalent of the vehicle, IIRC.

    Star Trek TNG is great, but DS9 was better in most every aspect short of Captains (and Data). Sisko was a badass but was also Shatner-like in his delivery; Stewart was more natural in his role. Still, ODO MOTHERFUCKER.

  161. Well then Bob Orton can speak for himself.

  162. That rule was the worst. No mats around the ring was really stupid

  163. They filmed one of the chases through downtown Detroit; people were yelling Jesse Pinkman lines at Aaron Paul the whole time.

  164. The big difference is that all those guys drew. Watts wasn't drawing in early 90s WCW.

    ReplyDelete

    Good to see they put the crack pipes down long enough to do something productive.

  167. That's not bad if the movie is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Oh I remember. JR was such a Watts sycophant. I like the rough Watts style, but he forgot you need contrast.

    ReplyDelete
  169. JR sucks ass to whoever pays his bills, no matter how shitty they treat him.

    What amazed me in hindsight was how unlikeable TNG's cast was. Picard, Data and Riker were fun, and Worf was a cool character. But Geordi was kind of an asshole, Troi was worthless, Crusher was preachy, Wesley was God Incarnate. Some of the temps were fun, like Reg, but Chief O'Brien was criminally underused while others (Pulaski, Ro) were annoying as fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Heyman would rip Watts in promos. It was fantastic. I thought Watts stripping Rude of the U.S. title was garbage

    ReplyDelete
  174. There were jokes made about TNA fans being like Baghdad Bob the other day. Did anyone pull something off mixing together Baghdad Bob/HHH in a tank? Because that seems like it'd get loads of upvotes and I'd be interesting in getting involved in such a project.
